Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the house a number of times now and always impressed with the amount of space and very short walk to shops, cafes and beach. Excellent beach house, perfect for relaxing holiday.

Great House & Location

  • 5 of 5

We has a great holiday enjoying the spaciousness and neatness of the property. Our kids loved the table tennis, billiards and choice of games. We loved the quietness of the court and proximity to the beach, shops and secure backyard for our dog. We will definitely stay here again.

Our family had a great stay at the property. We really enjoyed the table tennis, fantastic location near the shops and the beach as well as the quietness of the court. The secure backyard for the dog and choice of games for the children kept us all entertained. We would love to stay there again.

Centrally located and convenient

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location as it was very convenient to local attractions. The property has everything that you need. Priced right for the age and amenity of the property. It is in reasonable condition for age and in a very quiet court. We slept well on the very comfortable beds. The BBQ and outdoor entertaining area is great. Very short walk to beach and local shops. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Elaine, thanks for posting a review of “Wintersun” on the Stayz website. We have just seen it, as we only returned from overseas yesterday. Unfortunately, our cleaner for more than ten years moved to the country and we had to find a replacement. The cleaning job following the previous tenant to your stay was her first job for us, and as you only gave three stars for “Cleaning”, obviously the place was not as clean as it should have been, and for that I apologize. We need to either talk to her or find a replacement, so would you mind being a bit more specific about the house’s cleanliness [or lack of cleanliness!], please? regards,Barry

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 5 nights and it was great! Perfect for families with kids (and dogs). Nice quiet street and sooooo close to the beach - again perfect for kids. Shops just at end of the street - didnt move the car for the entire time there. Its on our list of favourite places to stay.
